The Bane are alien invaders that appeared in The Sarah Jane Adventures - a spin-off of the popular sci-fi series Doctor Who (geared towards a younger audience).
The Bane acted as one of Sarah Jane Smith's first real opponents and sought to take over the human race using a soft drink called "Bubble Shock!" - which was in reality created out of the alien's secretion and enslaved those that drank it.
The Bane were shape-shifters (like many Doctor Who aliens) and had truly hideous true-forms which they kept hidden until their plans were exposed.
